Cincinnati Bengals Workout SMU WR Aldrick Robinson

According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, the Cincinnati Bengals have worked out with SMU wide receiver Aldrick Robinson.

Robinson holds an SMU record as being the only receiver in school history with more than one season with more than 1,000 receiving yards. The 5-10, 182 pound receiver ran a 4.35 40-yard dash, posted a 40 inch vertical leap, a 10-6 broad jump, and did 17 repetitions of 225 pounds on the bench press. In his career as SMU, Robinson has 3,314 yards receiving on 181 receptions and 30 touchdowns.

He's considered to be a late-round draft choice.

ESPN Draft Scout ranks Robinson as the No. 21 wide receiver in this year's draft class, saying that he shows "no fear over the middle," he "is quick off the line with enough speed to drive a defensive back off," and he has the potential to be dangerous after the catch because of his speed.

Robinson had some character issues early in his career at SMU, but seems to have gotten all of that out of his system early.

Was one of four players (including Emmanuel Sanders) to be suspended the final two games of the 2008 season for 'minor infractions such as, class problems and being late to meetings.' Robinson matured late in his career and took on a leadership role as a senior.

The Bengals need some new blood at the wide receiver position. Most expect them to draft Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green in the first round, and while Green could fill the role of a No. 1 receiver nicely, both Andre Caldwell and Jerome Simpson will be free agents after the 2011 season. The Bengals may need to draft more than one receiver to ensure the future of the position.
